T his a rea is a t most equal t o t he a rea of half the cycle because of cancellations of the positive a nd negative areas of a sinusoid. T he second t erm is t his a rea multiplied by 0 2 /2T w ith T - > 0 0. Clearly this term is zero, and PI = 0 2 2 (1.5a) 2 This shows t hat a sinusoid of amplitude 0 has a power 0 /2 regardless of the value of its frequency Wo (wo ;.!o 0) a nd p hase II. T he rms value is 0 /.;2. I f the signal frequency is zero 2 (dc or a constant signal of amplitude 0 ), t he reader can show t hat t he power is 0 . ( b) I n C hapter 4, we show t hat a s um of two sinusoids m ayor may not be periodic, depending on whether t he r atio WI/W2 is a r ational number or not. Therefore, the period of this signal is not known. Hence, its power will be determined by averaging its energy over T seconds with T - > 0 0. T hus, • E xample 1 .1 Determine t he s uitable measures o f t he signals in Fig 1.2. In Fig. 1.2a, t he signal amplitude - > 0 as It I - > 0 0. Therefore t he s uitable measure for this signal is i ts energy E I given by 1 = 1 0 00 Ef f 2(t) d t - 00 = (2)2 dt -1 1 00 + 4 e-' d t =4 +4 =8 0 I n Fig. 1.2b, the signal amplitude does not - > 0 a s It I - > 0 0. However, i t is periodic, and therefore its power exists. We c an use Eq. (1.3) t o d etermine its power. We c an simplify t he procedure for periodic signals by observing t hat a periodic signal repeats regularly each period (2 seconds in this case). Therefore, averaging f 2(t) over a n infinitely large interval is identical t o averaging this q uantity over one period (2 seconds in this case). T hus 1 P I=2 11 -1 1 l(t)dt=2 11 -1 2 1 t dt=3 Recall t hat t he s ignal power is t he square of its rms value. Therefore, t he rms value of this signal is 1 /v'3. • T he first and second integrals on t he r ight-hand side are t he powers of t he two sinusoids, which are 0 1 2 /2 a nd 0 2 2 /2 as found in p art ( a). Arguing as in p art ( a), we see t hat t he t hird t erm is zero, a nd we h avet (1.5b) and t he rms value is ; ,/(01 2 + 0 2 2 )/2. We c an readily extend this result t o a s um of any number of sinusoids with distinct frequencies. Thus, if tThis is true only if W I # W2.
